tures of exceptional interest5|j|||^^- 
portancc. • '''-'':■'■ 

The first official indication that the 
British naval manoeuvres thla summer 
are to be on an exceptionally largo 
scale Is to be found In the appoint- 
ment of Vlce-Adrairal Prince Louis of 
Battenberg to the temporary command 
of a fleet during the operations. I'rlnco 
Louis is one of the sea lords of tho 
Admiralty, and the appointment of an 
admiral for sea service while lie is stUl 
serving on the board Is quite without 
precedent. The step has therefore 
caused no small comment, as has the 
appointment of the first lord's naval 
secretary, Rear-Admiral David Beatty. 
to command a cruiser squadron In the 
manoeuvres, and the working of the 
ararngement in practise is eagerly 
awaited. With the exception of Sir 
William May, whose selection as um- 
pire In chief Is also announced. Prince 
Louis will be the senior of the 20 flag 
officers engaged In the manoeuvres. 
Xmatrlnangr War 
The last strategical manoeuvres on 
a large scale in the British navy were 
In 1906, when an Important scheme of 
commerce protection In which the 
mercantile marine was Invited to co- 
oierate was .set by the admiralty for 
elucidation. Its K«neral Idea was that 
war had started between a strong 
naval power and a weaker, but still 
formidable one. and all avallabla ships 
were dlvldp.1 into red and blue fleets, 
to represent these two imaginary 

Frou) the uppolntment of Sir William 
May and Prince Louis of Battenberg, 
It Is reasonable to assume that some- 
thing of a similar kind may again be 
done. Both those officers took a prom- 
inent part in the 1906 operations, Sir 
William May 'In command Of the blue 
battle squadron and Prince Louis in 
command of the principal blue cruiser 
squadron. It was Sir William May who 
caused a sensation by asserting that 
he had held command of the channel 
from Ushant to the North Sea for 56 
hours without moltstatlon, and to have 
made requisitions at Scarborough, 
Brlighton and other coast towns. The 
number of wflrshipp taking pari will 
almost certainly show an increase over 
the record total of 325 which were 
utlllted in- "1906, but the exact number 
will depend upon the supply of men. 
The principal effective warships from 
thfc- reserve can. of course, be manned 
by active service ratings from tho 
training schools, but older vessels re- 
quire a proportion of reservists to com- 
plbte their crewis.

By the 'passing of the bylaw provid- 
ing for tho abolition of the ward sys- 
tem tho city council last night ac- 
quiesced In the wish of the majority 
of the electors of the city as •express- 
ed by referendum at the lest civic elec- 
tion, and at the next civic election al- 
dermen will be elected by tho votes of 
the people of the city at largo in the 
same manner as the mayor or members 
of the school board are now elected. 
But three members of the board. Alder- 
man Okell, Porter and Cuthbert, voted 
against the motion approving of the 
change. By Its action the council ter- 
n-iinat'cd a system of representation in 
force since the Incorporation of Vic- 
toria as a self-governing community. 

Alderman Stewart. who Introduced 
the bylaw, expressed the opinion- that 
many ratepayers desire the ward sys- 
tem abolished, but personally he believ- 
ed that it would be a serious mistake 
and tihat it would only be a short time 
before a return, to the existing sys- 
tem would be made. Most of the cities 
In the old land and in Canada had the 
ward system, which would Indicate that 
It Is a success. Wiith aldermen elected 
by the city at large it would 
likely result in a majority of 

them being selected from one particular 
section and naturally that particular 
section would be well looked after 
while others would bo neglected. But 
as the majority of the electors wiho 
voted upon the referendum were in 
favor of the change perhaps It would 
be better to let them have an oppor- 
tunity of trying out the new systrim. 
Alderman Beard argued In favor of 
the abolition of the existing system, 
claiming that if the proposed system 
worked well In the case of the mayor 
and sohool trustees it should work 
equally -well In the case of aldermen. 
Alderman Porter believed a change 
would be a mistake, while yVUlerman 
Baker could see good points In both 
systems but he was hardly ready to 
give an opinion until he had further 
considered the matter. 

T9W Pr ecedante 
Mayor Beckwlth personally believed 
that If the wards were abolished it 
would be but a short time before tho 
old 2"steni were again rRVTted to. The 
only city In Canada that he knew of 
which adoprted the system was i-tamil- 
ton, Ont.. and th^ro the ward system 
was returned to. But os the electors 
desired the change there did not ap- 
pear any other course than to meet 
tihelr wishes. 

Alderman Gleason pointed out that 
the present law did not prevent an in- 
dividual living In one ward from repre- 
senting another. Therefore the prvja- 
ost .system waa not strictly one of ward 
representation. Tho existing system of 
local improvements had no bearing 
upon ward representation. The argu- 
mervt had been iiunlc thai tc> abollBh 
wards would affect the Greater Vic- 
toria idea, but he could not see ho-w. 
If addition* to the city were made 
would these be formed into -wards 
necessitating a larger council when tha 
council at present Is too large and a 
smaller body most desirable? The peo- 
ple knew quite well what they were 
doing when they carried the referen- 
dum, quite as well as when they voted 
for the present aldermen. \Tho wishes 
of the people should b« carried out 

"How about that vote of the rate- 
payers for the new police station T" 
queried Alderman Okell, having rtjf^r-

extreme Radical members on fSs' tiifher 
hand aim at giving the Irish parlia- 
ment more powder and making it more 
democratic, while some of their Non- 
conformist colleagu&s would have Inserted to safe-guard their fel- 
low-religionists of Ulster. 

With the exception of Lawrence 
Glnnell, Nationalist, with independent 
leanings, the Irish members have not 
yet tabled any amendments. Mr. Gin- 
n^H'H iiiTif*ndmf^!il?i would enl&rRe the 
powers of the Irish parliament and like 
those of the radicals, make It more 
democratic. While a month will be 
spent on the committo.e stage of the 
bill, few of tho amendments will re- 
ceive a hearing. The chairman of the 
committee has the power to choose the 
amendments that shall ha considered, 
his decision, however, generally being 
made after consultation with the lead- 
ers of all parties. Were all thf-se al- 
ready handed in discussed It would take 
more than one ses.slon of the parlia- 
ment to dispose of lliem.

While most of the amenaments pro-

the bill, there are some that will doubt-

Improve the measure. It' Is strange to 
find two Unionist membera, Viscount

occurred on March 3, 1908, w^en the 
old administration In power upwards of 
20 years, was defeated and lion. J. D. 
llazen was called upon to form a new 
government. Last October, when Mr.

ing became premier of New Brunswick, 
and now makes his first appeal to the 


terests and warning the government 
that such repreaslve action -will provoke 
extreme measures by the strikers. The 
manifesto was due to the fact that 
throughout the day hundreds! of tons of 
meat were unloadexl by the volunteer 
worker.=i under police protection. 

It is reported that tlie strike com- 
mittee In secret session decided that if 
the government resorted to the employ- 
ment of troops the strikers would re-, 
tullate by stopping the Royal Mall ser- 
vice which ran uninterruptedly through- 
out the iitrlko of 1911. 

The probability of the strike becom- 
s Increased by the belief 
en's strike would bo it par- 
failure and because of the con- 
tinual diversion of London vessels to 
other points. Instructions were sent 
tonight by the transport workers' fed- 
eration to Liverpool, Manchester, Glas- 
gow, Southampton and other ports, 
orde-rlng the men to refuse to handle 
the cargoes of such vessels, no matter 
what sacrifices circumstances may im- 
pose upon them.

Early action will be taken by the city 
in regard to the alterations to tho pub- 
lic market building on Cormorant 
street, to provide more adequate quar- 
ters for the police department. The 
ratepayers last year voted |30,000 for 
tills purpose, hut the then mayor vetoed 
the resolutions calling for the expendi- 
ture of the amount voted. The polica 
commissioners recently requested the 
city council to proceed with the -work,

last night's meeting of the council. 

Alderman Gleason, who lauit year op- 
posed tho expenditure, was In favor of 
proceeding -with tho work, but -ho said 
he had been Informed it woald coat 
from 1-10,000 to $45,000, and there 
■would be the loss on the sale of the 
4cbenture>s and the architect's fees, so 
that 130,000 would not be sufficient. 

The mayor pointed out that tlie plans 
would be so drawn that the amount to 
be expended would be kept to the low- 
est possible limit. 

The tentative arrangement arrived at 
between the water comnilssioner and 
tho local officials of t^e Canadian

LONDON, May 27. — Next month a 
very heavy list of ceremonies Is on the 
royal programme. Opening with the 
celebration of the King's birthday on 
June 8rd, no fe-wer than twelve Import- 
ant engagements are Included in the 
list. The King will go to Cardiff to 
lay the foundation stone of the Welsh 
national museum, then to Bristol for 
the opening of the new King Edward 
memorial building, and to Winchester 
for a thanksgiving service for the re- 
storation of the cathedral. 

Among tho sporting events of June 
arc the Epsom and Ascot races, and 
both will be honored by the attendance 
of tiitlr iXaJuStlCs.

highly pleased with the work which 
has been so long In progress, but which 
Is now completed at Buckingham Pal- 
ace. This work was begun in the 
reign of King Edward, who was anxi- 
ous to bring the many o<ld-fashloned 
arrangements at the palace tip-to- 
date. Queen Victoria would never con- 
sent to the installation of electric 
lights, and Irwiisted on the retention of 
gas and even candles, but the place is 
now more in keeping with twentieth- 
century Ideas.

OTTAWA, May 2?. — John Hedges, 
the new United States representative 
on the International Fisheries Commis-

with Professor Prince, the Canadian ex-

Hedges comes with the object of 
smoothing over the difficulties arising 
out of the failure of tho United States 
to agree to the proposed food fishery 

Canada has taken the position that 
the present conditions ought not to con-

from the treaty. It is believed that

MELBOURNE, May 27, — ^Dr. Mawson, 
the Australian explorer, has returned 
from his exijedltlon to the sotith polar 

The promised objections from 
Quebec counsel, R, C. Smith, 
against the court dealing with 
question at all, did not prooeed 
far. Mr. Smith began but did„ not get 
the length of questioning the jurisdic- 
tion of the court His contention was 
rather that the court under existing cir- 
cumstances ought not to deal with the 
church at this time. He reserved his 
main argument on this point a* the 
suggestion of the chief justice. The 
reference was Introduced by lB. L. New- 
comb. K. C, deputy minister of Jus- 
tice. He offered no argument. Wallace 
Neabltt, K.C., contended that the Brit- 
ish North America aot giving the prov- 
inces no Jurisdiction except In regard 
to actual solemnization. The argum«nt 
from then on dealt with the history and 
legality of marriage as a civic contract 
and from its religious spirit and upon 
the meaning of "Marriage and solemirt- 

Mr. NesbHfs contention was that 
marriage was a contract apart from 
the "solemnization," th-e latter being in 
the nature of evidence, 

Mr. Lafleur's argument reviewed the 
Charboceau and Herbert cases and 
concluded that th-e Herbert civil con- 
tract was not affected by the religious 
solemnisation, tho legal po^wer of the 
clergy having regard only to the regis- 
tration of civil statutes. 

V, T. F. Helmuth, ICC. and P. B. 
Mlgnault, K.C., will begin the argu- 
ment against the bill tomorrow end 
the hearing may close on Wednesday.

proceedings for Attorney-General of 
Ontario, and Mr. Lancaster is present,

was made. The present bylaw calls 
for a fllne of not more than |50, but

Is represented in the house of commons

was for a few days the policy of some 
Conservatives in 1010.

defines the legislative powers of the

ing the Tacoma situation. He said 
that there -vv-ould be no diiflculty in 
.satisfactorily disposing ot the fi^n- 
chlsc for there were more than one 
bona fide application from centres 
where the game would be given the

wa.s dropped fr^m the Northwestern

be taken over by the league, the b:uk | 
salaries of players paid by It.! i! ; 
will llniah out its games, those sched- 
uled for the home, grounds being shift- 
ed to Seattle. 

Fielder Jones, president of the 
le.igue, was empowered to dispose of 
the club to some other city, and th^- 
team -wlU be -taken as the Tacoma 
team until suCh time. A. Rothermel, 
owner of the club, has been In financial 
diflicultles practically since th^ season 

The league offered to return the 
$1,000 forfeit money and to assume all 
past debts in return for transfermont 
of the franchise to other Tacoma men. 
Rolhcrnial insisted on $1,500 for his 
pcr.sonal interest In the club and this 
the league refused to consider. vVs th.- 
ruifeit agreement protected the owner 
in his territory for one year, the dl-

turn the club over to other local men 
unless they will guarantee it again?;

might be brought by Roihermei inidir

The club was turned over to Rother-

Shreeder. without money con.'tidera-

Our evening contemporary declares 
Its intention of acting upon our re- 
quest to make suggestions whereljy \he 
admlnlfstiQtion .of the Crown Lands 
department can be so i mprov^(J so'"^ 
that intending settlers may obta4tt suoh 
information as they may reasonably ask 
for; but Its ^rst article must be in- 
troductory only, for it does not touch 
upon the subject matter of the request. 
It i.s an arraignment of the govern- 
ment for permitting the vxlaieueo of an 
ailegccl condition of things in respect 
to ; the acquisition of land by '•specula- 
tors,' Its allegations are very serious, 
and if they are founded on facts, we 
submit it to bo the duty of our c6n- 
tcmporary to place the Minister of 
X^nJs in possession of those facts. 
They "are aUoscther too serious to be 
dis.'iissed In general terms in the 
columns of newspapers. AVe think we 
can assure the evening paper that, it 

ling to conirmplato. 

But if wc cut the estimate? in Ivmj 
and again divide them and divide them 
ohce more, there tvlU yet be very much 
too many fltes-^that is, if half tha 
things said about them is true. 'Indeed

prevalenco of minor epidemics may be 
traceable In a large degree to flies. By 
all means let us get rid of them by 
destroying tliclr breeding places. Tills 
is a ittatter aljout which 'we ought to be 
especially particular In a country like 
this, where we have so little freezing 
weather. At the same time, we do not 
think it can bo said that files are hi 
all exceptionally numerous here. "We 
are inclined to think the truth Is lii the 
other direction. Nevertheleas, let as 
have an anti-fly campaign, not so mucli 
to kill files, as to prevent them from 
being born. The presence of files is an 
Indication of filth somewhere, and filth 
Is objectionable on its own accoiint. Get 
rid of the filth and we need not worry 
about the files.

Roosevelt's toUcy 
A form of crltleism which is success- 
fully pressed against State Courts to- 
day, will almost invariably be pressed, 
some day and Jn some particular, ag- 
ainst the Supreme Court of tlie United 
States If the i>ollt!cal power derived 
by State Courts from their present 
rights of interpreting the law be an of- 
fence to domocnxcy, will not" the time 
come when the political power con- 
ferred by the Federal Constitution pn 
the Supreme Court will also seem an 
offence? Mr Roosevelt's polley Is 
t-alculatod to rfli-HiC these specula i i'lns. 
nnd thoy explain the horror >\,;;i 
whcih it is met. On such a subject for- 
eign opinion is little worth, but In it.i

of the abuses of which it complains. 
The allegations made involve tlie repu- 
tation of men of respeccabllity and 
responsibility and are stated in such 
general lurni . * to cast very severe 
reflections u,.oii a very honorable pro-

V.itli aooul rive feet of v.aler in llie 
recently repaired westerly half of the

water for domestic purposes has shown 
considerable Improvement within the 
past few days. Work on the repair of 
the easterly half of the receptacle is 
being rnsiiod Hhead as fast as 11. "i men 
can do it. 

By the end of tho week It is expect- 
ed that three-/ourths of the wall and 
one-half of the floor area will be con- 
creted, and with good weax'n'er condi- 
llonp the whole work will, it is expect- 
ed, be completed by .lunc 20 next, when 
the Iong-dela>'ed work of putting the 
whole redcrvoir Into a state of good 
repair and making it watertlsht will 
have been finished. 

Ever since the big receptacle has 
been built it has proved . a fruitful 
source of trouble and criticism. and 
delay after delay has been experienced 
in undertaking the necessary repairs. 
.Vot until "the present council engaged 
Mr. R. H. Thomson to report upon the

HALIFAX, K. S., May 27.— The fu- 
neral of Lady Tupper this afternoon 
was a notable event. The weather was 
bright and the concourse ot citizens in 
carriages was one of the greatest rtcen 
In yearg. The services at the form-r 
Halifax home of Sir Charles was con- 
ducted by the Venerable Archdeacon 
ArmllKge. rector of St. Paul's Church. 
Three favorite iiymns of the deceaecd 
were sung as suggeated by Sir Charles. 

•During the service Sir Charles .sat at 
the head of the casket. Occasionally 
the aged statesman displayed keen emo- 
tion, particularly during the brief rc- 
inarivr< Ttntde by ihe ttrdidraoon. His 
ryes were bright and his manner alert, 
but he was evidently feeble and after 
the body was removed to the h<a';itc, 
Sir Charles had to bo ass'.stc.l to !•.« 
(•irriage by his sons, who v.crc m 
constant attendance on ih;lr latiui. 
At the grave Sir Charles '^are the ord-*ul 
well and tpok part in the rj^ponsrfs to

voice. Sir Charles sat far nuar'y nn 
hour at the grave, surrounjod by a few

Ilev. . in a witty and 

amusifi 1, pointed out that never 

had the es of Scotland been doing 

better work, but there were thousands 
of men wh-'--i ''^•'- churches were not 
reaching . • -e the Brotherhood 

movement specially striving to 
touch. As the BIsliop of London had 
remarked. "Tho church never had had 
the cities."' There was a race of men 
city-bred, growing up who knew nothing 
of an upbringing on "parrltch ai>d the 
.shorter catechism." There was an 
enemy but the -church could not locate 
him. The Brotherhood had done so. 
Democracy was (.'wakening and, under 
God, this movement wa.s being promoted 
to guide them to apply the gospel pre- 
cepts to social, civic and municipal life. 

Rev. I. W. Williams, Vancouver, sec- 
retary of the Sunday Schools associa- 
tion of B. C, described the organisation 
of the Vancouver brancli and the elec- 
tion of officers for the pn.n incc. 

Afttr considerable discussion a reso- 
lution was passed that the movement 
should be adopted in Victoria, and Mr. 
.1. Knight was appointed as temporary 
secretary to arrange for meetings to 
effect organization.

klCTURED here is the batt«ry of Otis-Fensom Passenger Elevators in the Traders Bank 
Building, Toronto, situated in the heart of the business district. Traffic here is tremendous. 
All day long from 8.30 a.m. until 6.30 p.m. a continuous flow of people ascend and descend 
from the first to the fifteenth floors. 

Perhaps no more convincing illustration of the efficiency of an elevator system exists anywhere. 
As in the Traders Bank Building, so in al! the notable commercial and financial structures through- 
out the country. Everywhere the story of Otis-Fcnsom service is told day after day, in suststined 
efficiency, freedom from repairs, unfatling reliability, and strength and beauty of construction. 
These same principles that make the Otis-Fensom Elevator admired and appreciated in its mora

an^ T. N. Hlbben. Mr. W. X. UvtwW 
Is acUni; as crowa proaeoutor. 

jury Mtitea ana shortly aft«MmK» 
presented true bills against Alfred Mor- 
ris, common assault; Joe ParelU, un- 
lawful wounding; Nicholas, attempted 
carnal knowledge, and against Willy 
Bill, an Indian, attempted rape. N» 
bill wa.s found against Wm. Hansen, 
charged with the theft of ?20 and a 
luiir of spectacles, and the prisoner was 
iinniedlately discharged, the court hav- 
ing previously remarked that such 
cases should have been dlapoBed of In a 
lower court. 

The Jury, without leaving the box, in 
the Morris case, found a verdict of 
guilty, and the prisoner was remanded 
for sentence. During the course of his 
evidence Morris said that after his as- 
sault upon the public prosecutor In the 
police court he had been roughly 
handled by the police, but, on being 
asked by his lordship If he could pro- 
duce witnesses, said he could not. 

The case of Parelli. charged with 
wounding, the offence having been com- 
mltied on the 10th of February in 
front of Ship Inn saloon on Wharf 
street, and a razor being used, was 
taken up at the opening of the after- 
noon session. The*'fonowing jury was 
empanelled: Messrs. Alex. Ingraham 
(foreman), A. D. Plnsdale, W. S. Bart- 
Ictt. V. M. Irwln,«=C. F. Oliver, Edward 
Kean, Wm. Bradley, Robert Heather, 
H. K. Colwell, Wm. Gill, John Halkett, 
S. A. Watson. 

The prisoner was represented by Mr. 
J. A. Alkman, who entered e plea of 
not guilty. As the proceedings had to 
be carried on with the aid of an Inter- 
pretor, the hearing: occupied consider- 
able time. No new evidence was ad- 
adaucea oeyond -wiiat had boon TSOOfuSv* 
in. the preliminary hearings In the pol- 
ice court. 

Mr. Alkman relied much on the evid- 
ence of prisoner himself, and. having 
placed him In the box, and hl.«i utory 
being told. In his address to the jury 
contended that It was clear that prison- 
er had simply been defondiiig himself 
from assault with Intent to commit 
robbery, and should be found not guilty. 
The jury took this view of the case 
also, though they deprecated the use 
of a razor under such circumstances. 
On making such presentation as a fii-st 
finding, his lordship sent them out 
again with Instructions to bring in a 
verdict of gu'-t" or not guilty, and thi^y 
ci>n«e the latter after again deliberating 
ror"^«m6 time. Prisoner was Immed- 
iately discharged. 

The charge agaln.«it Slmone, shooting 
at a fellow countryman on Broad street 
on Ist February, was next proceeded 
with, the following jury being empan- 
elled: Messrs. X^. J. Jones (foreman). 
S. F. Sharp, C. A. Goodwin, D. Fisher, 
J. A. Klei<, Goo. Ive.s, F. Shopland, 
Itnrry Brown, H. M. Gibson, J. M. Ma- 
son. Geo. Christie, J. Tribe. 
Lowe appeared for the prisoner, 

The various witnesses who had testi- 
fied at th" preliminary hearings In the 
police court were again examined, the 
case occupying considerable time owing 
to the necessity for an interpreter, 
and his lordahlp, desiring to conclude 
last evening ratlier than take up part 
of another day, an adjournment was 
taken at 5.45 until 8 p.m. 

At the evening pitting the case for 
the defence was heard, a large amount 
of evidence being put in, and the 
case olu nOv C«**c;fc*«v aui.ix ..j.^^. u -i.-^-- « 

The Jury was cu-t hut a short time and

that the nwners .should have an op- 
portunity of presei»ting their arguments 
why the structures should not be con- 
demned, ordered their demolition. Medi- 
cal Health Officer Hall reported that 
two stables on the list could not be 
condemned, provided proper drainage 
facilities were Installed, and as the 
owners agreed to do this work the 
stables will be allowed to remain.

which was held there last year. Dr. 
Home made a thorough tour of the 
exposition, and his graphic word pic-

The International exhibition of hy- 
giene, which was hfild at Dresden from 
JNIay till October of last year, said the 
speaker, was undertaken with the defi- 
nite Intention of displaying the science 
of hygiene In all Its branches in the 
most complete manner possible. Its | 
endeavur was to orova that hygiene I 
was not a far oft science for experts | 
and professors but a live problem that 
.concerned Itself closely with every 
day of life. The exhibition had been 
planned fur el«ht years, the master

smaiL A aumlMr ot tAo ablest m«n 
ami «roo9«n of oar time have devoted 
llwtf^elveii to the pro6lem of training 
c^klidtwn whooe minds are weak to 
: -JWwpOrt themsflves. It has 'Tjcen^ found 

POffirlble to teach many of them to work 
ana to be happ.v. On the «thcr hand, 
the report states that there are few of 
these who can be trusted to cure for 
thmselves. They never become more 
than children who, If left to theiuselve.s 
nili come to grief. The most hojieful 
feature of the report tells of the e.\- 
piyrlenee ■of the city ' of M.inchestcr, 
Knsland, The writer aays; 

"We made up our minds In Manche.-i- 
ter to try what a life Ions contlnuou's 
system of care would do for these 
poor bi-othren of ours. \Vc con.slderfd 
their comlitiou very carefully before we 
began, and came to the conclusion that 
ainc« weakness of will power was the 
defect that was common to all feeble- 
minded persons, tliat since it Is because 
of this dfcffcct that they are alway.s in 
trouble, always suffering themselves 
and a cause of suffering in others, the 
pnly rational plan was to place them-' 
in such circunistiances that aJl the In- 
fluences to which they are subject are 
good, instead of leaving them in clr- 
cirmstances which Insure that all the 
influences about them are evil. It 
seemed to us that since It la so easy 
to persuade the feeble minded to any- 
thing, wo might as well try to persuade 
hlin to enjoy life in an imiustriai col- 
ony whore everything: should be arranb'- 
ed for his happiness end well-being. 
We were quite determined that w— 
■should have no loaf'Ts in our colony: 
except a boy or girl was 111, he or she 
must be oeeupicd every day and all day 
long. With such people. It Is only by 
a continuance of wholesome occupation 
that bad habltii! can be avoided. Wt 
knew beforehand that It Is very diffi- 
cult to reclaim people who have be- 
come the victims of evil clrcumsvanccs, 
and therefore, as it was only possible 
to care for a limited number, we de- 
termined to begin with children and 
grow our colonists up. It meant a 
long and patient waiting; but, from the 
beginning, we never let our ohildren 
or ourselves lose sight of what 
to be the ultimate reward of ihr-.|i 
labor ana ours. It wa.s to be that tlu-y 
f>liouI'l stay on as workers where they 
had been trained as sohool children. 
That was held out to them until It 
became an ambition with them to be 
allowed to leave school and go to work. 
It is really surprising how well our 
iiieone.s have worked out; acting upon 
the .'jii;t.JoH!tion that the Feeble- JliiuUd 
have no plans but such as are made for 
tiicm. and that they are exceedingly 
sii.«c<'ptibio to their surroundings, we 
imve .succeeded In building up a colony 
of 230 boys and girls and men and 
«'f)men, not one of whom would Icavr; 
us of their own choice. N'oi many do 
leave us,_ as will be seen whpn it is 
remembered tliat all must come to us 
before the ago of 13, and that wo now 
have seventy over thp age of 16, thirty 
of whom are between the ages oi 18 
and 2:1. Our scliool still gops on, of 
course, preparing our .';cho!ar« for iJic- 
after-care which we provide for them. 
With the utmost contentment they pass 
from the srhooiroom to the farmer or 
the gardener, the plumber or the car- 
penter, tu tlie sewing tenrher or the 
laundry matron, all of whom patiently 
carry on the teaching which has been 
well begun. The result is that our 
colonL-its do a good deal towards th»lr 
own support. Kach year sees them 
mere capable b£ca> each yenr add.i 
to thflr littlfr store! of experience. It. 
is very .xlov,- work; the Inemclcnt mus- 
cles must he trHlned; the wandering cyt 
learn to dwell upon itn work: the slow. 
Inert body musl be strengthened and 
made more active. It can be done. 
Boys «nd girls now bring In a sub- 
stantial sum towards their own main- 
tenance. It Is, however, to the other 
side of the plciiirc that wb must turn 
in order to realize the whole of what 
we are doing. Where would our chil- 
dren be if they were not with us? Al- 
most ,tI1 would be in the hands of the 
'-i»JS;,. «" paupers or criminals; not one 
con irt have R full find happy life. Al- 
most all of those wlio have reached 
early manhood' and womanhood would 
be •parents, and we should be building 
special schools to accommodate their 

If. In an overcrowded city . where, 
for generations, there had been pov- 
erty and with Its attendant evils, such 
happy results could be achieved, there 
Is no need to loave the few feeble- 
minded of a new country to perish for 
viaut of care.

WInnljieg has grown to be an import- 
ant Industrial centre as well as a big 
commercial city. Thi.s is recognized by 
-some of its leading citizens in a way 
that is likely to promote Its future 
greatness. A number of these have or- 
ga.nlstpd an tndoatria! bureau. The 

members cf this bureau, who are the 
leading men In trades and Industries, 
have undertaken to give talks to the 
pupils of the higher grades on lheli|< 
work. The.'se talks will aftorwarrls be 
printed and distributed among ihe lads. 
It is hard to over-estimate the good 
thflt may result from tlils work. It is 
not alone that these gentlemen will give 
the lads valuable information which 
their teachers jranr.ot, Ir. thr majority 
of case-, be expected to possess. The 
greater value is in the personal contact 
with men of hig'ner character and of 
great personal nbllliy. ij.irls are horo- 
worshlppers ami it is a fine thing for 
them to learn, while they are yOung, 
what are the things most worth while 
attempting and who arc the men whose 
achievements they ought to admire, if 
more men in every city took a real in- 
terest In the boys of our schools, there 
would be fewer wasted lives among 
the youtii of our country. These talks 
are likely to help the Ijoys In their 
choice of their life's work. This will 
be belter understoori when It Is seen 
that the speakers Include such practi- 
cal men as Vice-prosldcnt Bury and 
Foreman Wield of the Canadian raclllc 
Railway gtaff, Mr. W. J. Bulman of 
an engraving firm, Mr. J. G. Walker of 
the Sprague Lumber company, and Mr. 
A. I.,. Struthera of the Business Science 
club. The bureau has also provided a 
fund to be u*ed in securing lectures by 
men aelected for that purpose by the 
employer^ and employees of each In-

Williams hit to the. palings, scoring 
both Cruik and Fries. Three runs. 

There was Winter on the wold when 
th* BcpR went in to beKln their ef- 
forts, and when two succumbed quick 
the throng wished that .1. X'luvlus might 
let go a downpour and .stop tlie pro-

Nick WiUiam.s' warriors, unsatisfled, 
took one' more run in the second, Colt- 
rln hit, Lamlinc sacrificed and a wild 
i'itch piitColtrln on third, from where 
he squeezed home on Spca's bunt, while 
MoCreery clung lovingly to the ball and 
never realized that it could have beeti 
_thrown to the plate. 
pWith the tally standing »l 4 lu nil 
Ic temperature seemed low behind the 
netting — but tlio Bu/.zcrs Were only late 
in getting started. That was all. With 
one 'departed Keller beat an Infleld one, 
Alerrltt got a walk, and Rawlings drove 
one to Williams for a sure out. The 
i)lond(; manager let Rawllngs to the 
ixjg and hurled to catch Merritt go- 
ing to second, the pill landing on the 
young man's spine and l)ounding away, 
letting Keller to the plate. 

McCreery came up with two on the 
bags. "Get a hit, Mac," suggested the 
spc(,tKtor.s. He did. He walloped oiie to 
ihe outii' ' ring two, Merritt and

In the liiird the Boos took three 
more. Cordial tiianiv."j arc due ro the

and beat it! Kennedy got to third on 
the effort to tag *lm. Then Weed drove 
a liard one which Mr, Doty, who was 
now doing the hurling for the Pippins, 
failed to hold, Kennedy scoring while 
Meek was put out, and then a fast 
double play ended the proceedings. \ 

The fftaturo of the seventh was that

and Doty hit, fllUng the bags. I'ruiu-

GaTnc starts today at i (x;lock at 
Ri).\al .\thletic .Park. 

There arc to be two games on 
Thursday between the Bees and the 
Pippins. Times of starting and other 
particulars will be announced later. 

The fans should foel satisfied. They 
have gut that for which they agitated. 
The number of local games will be 
almost doubled In the revision of the 
.schedule consetiuent on 'l'.".<'<Miia's rc- 

Yesterday's game was thn first gen- 
uine swalfest the home fans have seen. 
Sixteen hits on one side and eluven on 
t!;c other. Six two bafrgers and two 
home runs, both of the latter for Vic- 
toria in tho fifth, gives an idea of Ihe | 

.<<liigging (lone. 

Take a look at Kennedx's l>attiiig av- 
erage fur tlie day and tlien pay there is 
nothing in a new. carFftillx- chosen, well 
balani'cd bnt tf you dare. He got three 
lilts for four times at l>Ht. one ot them 
a two bagegr. 

Pitcher McCreery was In a peculiar 
mood. He wasnf at all right In his 
pitching. Ordinarilj- It would be put 
down as an off da>- and the fans would 
have gonn home mourning a defeat. 
But he hit so hard and often as to 
make tho wrak e.^<l <>f the 'oattlng or- 
der the stronger, which helpetl a lot. 

Looking back on yesterdays game 
it will have to be admitted that tlie 
tide really tu^:;ne<l decisively In Vic- 
toria's favor not b^ause of the Bees' 
hc4ivy hitting, although that was larg- 
ly responsible, but when KIbbie. third 
base, heaved Kellers easy ground hit 
away over- NMck William's head. Thrf 
three runs whl<jh' followed took the 
gjtn«rer out of the Pippins. 

FftiK^y Meek's beating out a bunt!

enthusiasts T may tell you of three 
other soldiers who have made this same 
acore a-t these same ranges, possibly, 
however, the two possibles obtained 
might not have been made at llie same 
two ranges as that at which .Semple 
made ills. They are as follows: At

t^»t a CMsiMT paper nag a ratner 
amusing aixount of a visit pa14<to that 
alty recently iby Mr. a A. (Parker, ^e

ago and, in Intervtews with the local 
1)1 ess, stated that he was going to run 
the forthcoming touinainent, that he 
would not stand foi the B. C .V. A. X'. 
amateur ruling applying to It, and 
that he was going to cause trouble 
when he got in touch with the football 
people at <"'a!gary. 

Couldn't Oot Shield 

Here is the gtory of his meeting with 
the Hillhurst club officials in that city 
as given by one of that city's news- 

"Mr. Parker's chief object for the 
visit was to get the People's shield. 
Early In the day he had visited Alex. 
Martin's athletic outfitting store, 
where the trophy Is on exhibition, and 
tried to obtain possession. But he 
was turned over to iMr. Stanley Jack- 
son, the secretary of the Hillhurst club, 
who. In turn, took him to Mr. Frank 
Riley. But he was turned down by 
all. and when he made a similar re- 
quest to Mr. Dave Jenkyn, the presi- 
dent of the club, in the presence of 
some of the committee and club mem- 
bers, he was given to understand 
clearly that he was not to have the 
shield. Mr. Riley has been requested j 
by Dr. Inps not to hand the shield 
over until he lias received back a ?400 
bond posted a few years ago for the 
safe custody of the shield. 

"However, Hillhurst made a sugges- 
tion that the shield be competed fo;- in 
Calgary, stating they had quite as 
much right to fix the venue of the 
competition as G. A. This did not fall 
in with 'Mr. 'Parkcr's views. 

"Getting no satisfaction in that di- 
rection, Mr. Parker then tried another 
scheme. He almost begged iHlllhurst 
.to go and compete at Winnipeg for tht=! 
shield. He pointed out that there 
would ibe some difflcuUy in their doing 
that, seeing that they were profession- 
alized on account of their old country 
trip. However, ho would sec that they 
were put all right. He would arrange 
the mtitter for them. How grateful 
Hillhurst would be to him for his 
fatherly attitude in the matter! ' 

"But all the time the ungrateful foot- 
ball boys were smiling, and Parker 
wondered why. We will unbosom tlie 
secret. The question of the profes- 
sionaii'/ing of the Hillhurst club or j 
otherwise, was left in the hands of the 
.Mberta. Football Association, who at 
their annual meeting decided they were 
still amateurs.

ed the ruling against decisions it is ex- 
pected that those who violate such rul- 
ing will be forced to suffer the conse- 
quences, which means their licenses will 
be revoked. But the matter will not 
end there. It is a cinch that tlie Na- 
tional club for one, will appeal from 
t^iich judgment and ask the oirtnlon of 
the lilgiier courts on the c|, if 
nccofisary. The rule against decisions 
appjifs tn prDie»?<ionn:t cwnlesla tiionc; 
Mjrdii'ta in amateur bouts are allowed. 
It appears to me that this dlscrlnvina- 
li'in against profes.sionals Is decidedly 
i;!i:air to promoters inid boxers, as well 
HH the public, and it ..seems only reason- 
able to c-xpect that the courts will take 
the same view of the mnttcr. The re- 
grettable Vnrt of the affair Is the fact 
that the agitation wi)f do ths game lit- 
tle good, too much publicity Ik always 
bad medicine for professional sports

I have been an advocate of jecislons 
since the Frawley law has been in '3'p- 
eratlon, ' and have contended that the 
prohibitory ruling is a knock Insteed of 
a boost for the pastime of swat and 
duck. Those who argue that oflJcial de- 
cisions encourage gambling on contests 
are of the pessimistic kind who never 
see good In anybody or anything, and 
who daure that all men are crooked. It 
Is extremely doubtful if there would 
ha any rnd;-c betting if referees sclcclci 
winners than there la under existing 

The argument that referees would 
fall for "proposlilons" from gamblers 
and render decisions accordingly i.s ab- 
surd, .K r<?fer^e might get *R'ay with the 
rough work once, but that would be 
about all. The law gives the boxlns 
commission authority to issue and re- 
voke licenses of referees at their own 
sweet will anj It would be up tu thai 
body to keep the. arbiters on the strnlglit 
and narrow path, .\nd for tliat matlLr 
1 do not know of any man who ofhcldvcs 
in local rings who would stoop to dis- 
honest methods. The majority have es- 
tablislied reputatiort.s for hpuesty and 
capability by ycar.s of good and faith- 
ful service. Such men as Tim Hurst, 
Charley 'VVUSte, Palay UmIcv, Blily Joii 
and Sam Austin have enviable records; 
these are tl)^ sort of men wlio presldi:

Give the public that supports pro- 
fessional boxing what they v\ant, com- 
jMl.<»siounrti, aK long aa you can ilo iui 
within the letter of' the Jaw, If you 
have any doubts: conpopjpi|^,|tie Irtteg- 
rlty ; of your ' rarerees,-||||:^tti|;''in' , your 
powfi- to reduce the pwWraHlty of. evil 
lit tliat direction to a minimum. A. very 
good plan w-ould be as suggested in this 
ioluiTin. roonthsj ago. to assign boxing 

plmniMM^ili^iM^ an: exceeding- 

ly difficult Job for unscrupulous per- 
sons to ."get to" the right man, inas- 
much as assignments will not be made 
public until the last moment. 

Jim Flynn and his retinue of trainers 
have settled down to t)ie her.i work of 
training and reports emanating from 
the little town of Las Vagas tall of a 
spirit of confidence' 'hat pervad-^.T th'.' 
camp of the white challenger for inc 
championshltp. The opposition to the 
fight that fSr a time tlircaiened to de- 
velop into serious trouble nas been 
smoothed over and everything indlcat.'S 
that the big holiday event will take 
place as originally planned. 

Jack Curley, acting in the double 
capacity of manager of one of the con- 
testants and promoter of the battle, 'b 
very conlldent the sttraction will draw 
Immense crowds, and that I^lynti will 
•lefeat the negro Johnson. As for Klyrn 
himself I'll say I have never '.allied 
with a man with more confidence in iiis 
ability to win a fight than the r>f?blo 
fireman manifested dvirinB: our rpci r. t 
conversation. If courage and bell ;f '.n 
one's own powers Is half the hn-Mlc. fip 
many profess to bplie\"e. then Flynn or- 
tainly has a grand chance. 

That Flynn and Curley are not trybi^ 
to kid the public Is made plain by their 
offer to bet on the result. Flynn hr.s 
>7,'>00 of his hard-earned coin Viat l-'^ 
will risk at odd.i of i 1-2 to 1, and Clur- 
{'■y iias already placed several th'ni- 
sands with Tom O'Rourke at these odds, 
rp to date I have not hcprd of any 
rush to ir.ih the "easy" money these 
guileless gentlemen have offered at 
the odds mentioned. JIra is a legitimate 
3 or 4 to 4 shot on the records of tliii 
men. I suggest to those who are al- 
w.-iy.s trying' to beat the price that this 
looks like one opportunity to get "some- 
thing for nothing." 

Later on the weight of monej- that 
is always on tap to back a champion 
will make Flynn's price lengthen, and 
in view of that fact Messrs. Curley and 
FTynn's proposition to accdVt the short- 
er price has a sporting ring to it that 
must appeal to who admire "game

Tt is the intention of the Garden .\th- 
letlc club, of this cltj', to feature in- 
ternational contests throughout the 
.summer season. Of course, this does 
not mean that the home boys will not 
be paired now and then: in fact, tlie 
garden folks hava several corking bouts 
in view in which the principals are 
.Americans. But the officials are convlnc- 
pd that New Yorkers like to see our 
best hoys pitted agalnvt the pick of 
Kurope and will work along those lines 
whenever opportunity offers. 

Efforts are being made to induce 
Carpentler, the French sensation, to 
visit thi.s side, but to date ha\e not 
been successful, Gt-'orges is a big card 
in his own country and it will tako con- 
siderable persuasion and mighty big 
offers to land the P^uropean champion.

bane and Jem Drlscoll. f'-atherweight

oij^polnted Ahe Attell on the occasion 
of his first visit to this country two 
years ago. Jem is to box Poesy, the 
French champion, early In J\inc and if 
successfiil in that engagement will sign 
to take on the Anierican provided the 
latter will permit him to come !n at 
the Kngllsh featherweight weight limit 
or 126 pounas. .lonnny couion and Dig- 
ger Stanley are also, dickering for a 
bout for the world's bantam champion- 
ship. The former has expressed his wil- 
lingness to sign articles, and the buck^ 
has been passed to the Briton.

of seeing Ad Wolgast in action w4tb

performance of e.vceptlonal merit and a 
production as perfect as the genius of 
David Bolasco can create. Her latest 
triumph, "Nobodj'a Widow," from the 
pen of .\very Ilopwood, Is designated as 
a farcical romance, disclosing an or- 
iginality of construction and a scries 
of novel complication, embroidered by 
brilliantly written dialogue tliat has re- 
ceived the most glowing tributes of 
approval wherever presented. JIlss

the animal, lield until he can get tf go'id 
grip on the animal's head. His favorite 
me.thod is to pursue tha steer on the 
bu-k i.f a pony, watch for a favorable 
opportunity, vault from the pony to 
the steer, rido around the arena sev- 
eral times on the back of the angry 
animal, and then twist the steer's 
horns until it rolls over and admltj it- 
self beaten. Pickett is credited with 
many narrow escapes from Injurv/ and 
even dealli by ills daring reckle-fiines? 
in handling wild steers, in Mexico, 
several years ago, when he threw a 
wild steer that had defied all the bull 
fighters of the Me.xicen capital, the mob 
resented his bravery and tried to kill 
him. I/o»t season, durlns: a stampede 
of cattle on the Miller Brothers' rancl'. 
At Bllris, Oi<lf.homa. he was cau.sht witli 
ills pony in a .swirling mass of steers, 
and escaped, «ltli only e few brui.ies, 
by springing from the back of ons 
.steer to another until 'he had rci'j;u-.d 
the edge of the herd fcnd was a'l!? to 
run for slieltcr. The pony was gvrn-l 
and crushed by the angry cflttle. Pickett 
Is Bald to ride a steer liko most cow-

During Sleep 
Nature Repairs 

the Human Engine 

If you are one of the 
"Sleepless Squad," let us 
suggest that you avoid 
coffee and tea, and have a 
cup of steaming hot 


before retiring. 

It has soothed the tired 
nerves and brought peaceful, 
refreshing sleep in many, 
many cases. 

The activities of the day 
cause more or less waste of 
tissues which is repaired at 
night during sleep. 

The man or woman who 
sleeps well at night is sure of 
the necessary repairs, other 
things being right, to make 
each day a time of useful- 
ness and living a joy.

whom he calls to win the honor again 
■for theDomlnlon la Butler •of the Ar- 
gonauts, Toronto/ Mr. Smith was for- 
merly connected with the Argos him- 
self and says that Butler is a natural 
born sculler. He .Is In the very best of 
condition and If nolhlhg happens he 
will 'compete not only at Henley, but 
at Stockholm, the national cham- 
pionships of the ITnited States and at 
the Canadian Henley. Mr. Smith seema 
to think that he has a good opportunity 
to come out winner In them all. In 
this he Is to a certain extent backed 
up by Nlcholls. the coach of the Detroit 
Rowing club for some years and a man 
who is thoroughly j>osted on rowing 
matters both on this aide and the other 
of the Atlantic. : , 

Nlcholls does not see anyotte In inter- 
national rowing circles, ho told Mr. 
Smith, whom Butler should not be able 
i'> beat 
tKlnnear, has held the sculls for two 

irs now, and a.lthough there la one 
Han in the United States-— Fuessel, 
who ha» done some wonderful work, 
he naturally is not getting any bet- 
ter wUh age.

The old-fashioned way of stretching and drying 
curtains was to lay them flat on the carpet. This 
liard work made your back and your thumbs sore,

over by this clumsy way of drying them. Now*a new 
way has been found that lets you have fresh, clean curtains all the ti^ne. You will know how easy it is -when 


It's frame of clean white basswood, made so that it will take any size of curtains. You can put a curtain 
on it in no time simply and easily. It dries the most delicate lace curtains without kinks and wrinkles. What 
you .save on laundry bills in these months will pay for the stretcher. Makes your lace curtains last almost 
three times as long. You need this stretcher. Come in today and .see it. Price is easy. It will last for years. 

Three styles, priced at ^1,75, $2.50 and $3.50

"The, American smart woman ages 
early, far earlier than the English wo- 
man," says Christian Miller. F. C. I.. 
the fam'ous English health expert She 
Kids that our climate "io exhilarates 
j that you over exert yourselves and 
! prrow old before you know It. That 
-ime exhilarating air driea the akin. 

' The akin that lacks moisture grows 
:^«lfi and withered looking and soon 

, r.iiius wrinkles." 

"The American complexion" Is best 
treated by applying pure mercolized 
wax, which causes the fadeU, lifeieaK 
cultcle to flake off In minute purticlc«i 
a little each day, until the fresh. younR 
skin beneath is wholly in evidence. 
Every druggist has this wax; one 
ounce is aufflclent. . Spread on at 
night tike cold' cream, washing it off 
next morning. 

For wrinkles, dissolve an ounce of 
powdered sixollte in a half pint witch 
hazel; bathe the face in. this. Immedi- 
ately every wrinkle is affected, even 
the deeper lines. Both treatments are 
rcmark.iblo faciaj ro.1uvenators.

A BIGGER assortment than ever before is 
here for you to choose from, and, what 
is of more interest to the careful parent, 
the garments are the pick of t'he world's best. 

We have realized the importance of building 
up the Boys' Department and making it as strong 
as possible. The little fellows arc growing, and 
we want them to remember, when they grow up, 
where they got clothing t?hat pleased them, and 
we are anxious to get them into the habit of com- 
ing to the Spencer store. 

"That's why we have been so careful in mak- 
ing our choice, and prefer to work on a smaller 
profit, supplying nothing that will not stand the 
hardest test and some out smiling. 

Ilerr's some very snecials for Wednesday: 

Two-Pi«co Snlt«, double-breasted style, made of fine light 
weight twe&ds and fancy worsteds. Many new shades 
and patterns are here, end the sizes range from 23 to

An Important Notice To 


NIN^ETY-EIGHT per cent of all flies in our 
'homes are the ordinary house-flies, re- 
cently called "TYPHOID FLIES." 

Dirty homes, dirty people, dirty surroundings, 
and tvphoui flies are alwavs seen together. 

Manure, garbage and filth breed flies and 
death at the same time. Flies eat tubercular 
sputum, and excrete the germs of tuberculosis or 
consumption. Flies produce _ dysentery, diar- 
rhoea, typhoid fever, consumption and other fatal 

Flies are born in indescribable filth, live in 
filth, eat filth, and carry filth. 


The above notice was issued by our City 
Health Department, and although it, at first 
sight, seems rather sensational, it is a positive 
fact and one t'hat is easily proven. 

The one best way to cure the fly evil is to keep 
them out of the home entirely. To poison the 
flies that enter wur home is only half a remedy, 
and even that entails danger lor you. Here youTl 
find the best possible values in screetj doors and 
window screens marked at inviting prices. 

All Door Screens are made of carefully fielected dry 

pine, and are put together with long hardwood dowels. 

The wire cloth is the best possible quality, well japanned 

and securely fastened. The sizes of the doors are 2ft. 

81n. X 6ft. 8in.. 2ft. Sin. x lOln., 3ft. x 7ft. The size of the 

door rhakes no difforcnco to tho price, all ere alike. 

Our Leader, Ho. 1 baa a fine quarter cut oak finish and 
may be had In all sizes at each 95<> 

Our Special, Wo. a, made of good pine, is an attractive style 
and finished aurfaco oak. Price for any siee. . . .^1.35 

Our Xieader, No. 3 made of clear plno finished surface oak, 
is filled and varnished. You coji't get a better value 
for ^1.75 

Our Special Ho. 4. These aro a specially well built and 
iiaiidiiijriic door, ard oaiv gr^.n^i and varn,3-..ccl ana Tin- 
Ished with extra good wire netting. Any size at, 
each ^2.26 

Our Iioader, Ho. 5. These are by far the best door that 
we carry. Of the price is a little higher, but tho 
value is more than worth the difftrcnce. They come In 
all sizes, are a hatKlsome style and aro wall grained 
and varnishtxl. Price each ^^'^^ 


There is such a wido range of sizes that you are sure 
of pettlnK a screen that will fill the bill for you, and the 
outlay is so small you'd sooner buy dozens of sci^ens 
than be bothered with flics for a single week. All are 
made of well seasoned hardwood, slide easily and are fur- 
r.lvshed with tho best of v.'lrs netting.
